Copyrighted only because of colorization? If it were converted to black & white, it would be pd?

Legends Films claims copyright on all the PD films they colorize, and I haven't heard of any challenges. Convert it to B&W, and I think it is free and clear.

If I remember correctly, in all of their colorized releases Legends includes a black & white version along with the color one. The great thing is that they obtain a sharp copy before they start colorizing. So their black & white version is usually better than any version previously available to us.

Is the video quality excellent? If it's poor, then the Legends version must be better.

Legend sometimes alters the films before colorizing.
